SOLUTION

EcoGen produces, sell and distribute low cost domestic mobile biogas digester. This technology converts organic waste into biogas (for cooking fuel) and biomethane (for electricity production). A process is carried out using small and medium decentralized fermentation units for local processing of available organic waste (agricultural waste, household waste, etc.) into biogas. Organic waste is processed and marketed as fertilizer to distributors and cooperatives in Malawi. The biogas is purified and converted into electricity for use in off-grid areas.

VISION

Our vision is to be a leading company in providing a biogas based renewable energy for cleaner, healthy and richer Malawi.

MISSION

Our mission is to develop innovative ways of turning bio waste into wealth for our clients to contribute to low carbon pathways for Malawi, Africa and world at large.

Our digesters are more efficient, robust, and easier to maintain. They produce significant amounts of biogas from few wastes, (3kg of organic wastes=2 to 3 hours of cooking on gas). There is no need for technical expertise, users simply follow the clear instructions provided to produce biogas with minimal effort. Lastly, the system is portable, making it ideal both for rural and urban homes (mainly backyards) to turn their organic wastes into biogas to cover their daily cooking needs.
 

COMMUNITY AGENTS

These are youth and women from local communities whose work is to identify potential customers and provide door to door sales and technical services to our customers as well as providingawareness on the importance of using biogas as a clean source of energy. This is a commission based system and in this way, we create job opportunities to young people and women as well as providing biogas information in the communities.
